Representative Text

1 I have been to the fountain of cleansing,
And plung’d ‘neath the life-giving flow,
‘Tis the blood shed on Calvary’s mountain,
That makes the soul whiter than snow.

Refrain:
O yes it makes whiter than snow,
The blood cleanses me, this I know.
Since it cleans’d me from sin,
I have Jesus within,
His blood cleanses whiter than snow.

2 I have been to the fountain of cleansing,
Found peace in the Crucified One.
All my sins by His grace have been cancelled,
And heav’n in my soul is begun. [Refrain]

3 I have been to the fountain of cleansing,
And glory is flooding my soul.
Hallelujah! My heart is rejoicing,
His blood makes me ev’ry whit whole. [Refrain]
